    Comments about Core:

    I have been in facilities maintenance for over 25 years and got my first Leatherman, the original, in about 1991. Since then I have given them to my daughter, maintenance staff and my dad. My original is on my boat and my Core, my favorite, is always on my belt. I whip it out and use it for everything it's like having a tool box with you all the time. I love this tool and was saddened to find that it was no longer in production, the wave is a good tool too, those are what I gave to my staff, but the Core is THE tool. It may be heavier than the others but it can work harder than the others.
